Ryan Babel back in contention after apologising

Liverpool forward Ryan Babel has been restored to the squad by Rafael Benitez after apologising to the manager.

• Benitez goes on the defensive
• Mascherano defends Benitez
• Torres calls for Villa or Silva signing

Babel found himself in trouble at the club after revealing on his Twitter page last Friday that he had not been included in the party for the match at Stoke the following day.

However, the Netherlands international has accepted his error and will now fight for a place in the squad to face Tottenham at home on Wednesday.

"He came to my office and apologised," Benitez said. "He knows he has made a mistake and for me that is enough and I don't need to talk too much about this.

"Ryan will be in the squad because we have 20 players ready for the training session tomorrow so it (selection) is between these 20 players."
